to pay higher premiums. in fact, subsidize the program for the older ones who really need the obama care. i mean, really need the medical attention. so, for example, you're going to see an average 21-year-old see their premium increase about 81%. in fact, almost across the board, even with the subsidies that the government's throwing out, they're going to see catastrophic increases in what they're going to pay. so what are they going to do? they're going to say, look, i'm not going to pay that money. i'm healthy. i'm 21 years old. i'll pay the fine. which, by the way, i don't see how the irs is going to collect anyway, they have no mechanism to collect that. let's just say they can collect it. that's going to be a mere pittance as opposed to what they should be paying in. what's going to happen? obama care's like, we don't have enough funds. where are they going to get the funds? from the rest of us with increased obama care taxes. it's so inevitable. we'll be having this conversation a year from now. >> bernard, all these young people don't like obama care. if they don't sign up, what d
'll be having this conversation a year from now. >> bernard, all these young people don't like obama care. if they don't sign up, what does happen to prices for the rest of us? >> gary b. has been the chicken little on obama care from the very beginning. the fact is, now that kids are going to be able -- and young adults are going to be able to get on to the exchanges and find out ways available, what the coverage is like, i think we'll see enrollment numbers increase. ultimately, we're going to have to wait until march to figure out what the actual numbers are. here's what i encourage parents to do with their children around the christmas table this season is talk about health care, talk about the measures, talk about the benefits. the preventive care, the birth control -- >> bernard, stop, please, you're going to ruin everyone's christmas. >> i advocate putting enrollment stickers in everyone's stocking. >> they tried to get us to do that on the thanksgiving table. it is not open. i think they were trying to get bartenders talking about it as well. i'm not going to let gary b. go down a
earlier this year. in 2011 omar obama was arrested for drunk driving. it was discovered he was living in the united states illegally. they claimed omar and president obama had never met. now they have done a complete 180. twras gallagher as the kelly file investigation. trace? >> when the president's uncle was arrested we learned he was here illegally and that he was the president's uncle. i think i will call the white house. the white house said there was no record of the president meeting his uncle omar. this week omar obama testified not only had he met his nephew but barack obama even lived there. there is no support the president met his uncle. it is unclear what evidence they are they were looking for even though omar obama was mentioned in the book there was no mention of them ever meeting. today press secretary jay carney pinpointed the actual problem. >> the president said he had met omar obama and he stayed with him for a brief period of time until the president's apartment was ready after that they saw each other and after law school they gradually fell out of touch. >> th
, one thing that every young person in the country knows about obama care is that it is a lousy website. that is a union versal truism. but beyond that what is in it for 20-year-olds to sign up? >> we agree that the role is not good and hurt the perception of obama care. that is a fact. in terms of what is in it. you are talking about preventive care and caps if you get really sick. >> i think for catastrophic illness everybody needs insurance. but brad's point, if you are well and a healthy 20 something-year-old why go through the rigamarole? >> preventive care and birth control and other types of assistance, there is a lot of elements to it allow you to basically. >> you got to overhaul the system for birth control? >> no, you are talking about preventive care and talking about limits on lifetime caps. and making sure insurance companies are providing coverage for certain things. and talking about the various plans, people have a choice. they don't have to get a gold plan but they can get a bronze plan. >> bringing you back full circle. the idea for the segment was marketing and pr. i
and poor. it's not a new story or a new subject for president obama. he talked ariel castro it two years ago in a benchmark speech in kansas. and he spoke a little bit about in this year's state of the union. the top 1% in this country have seen their income triple over the course of the last 28 years, meanwhile the middle class has scene their income grow at a modest 1% on average over the course of that same time annually. so the president will be talking about that. he'll be talking once again renewing his call to raise the minimum wage. a lot of talk about that here in d.c. where the city council is voting to raise the minimum wage. democrats are now worried about heading into the midterm election, and with the senate up for grabs, so the president is going there, speaking to a liberal think tank, the center for american progress who is sponsoring the talk. he is bolstering his base, renewing some of his themes he has been talking about and setting his agenda not only for the state of the union speech coming up presumably last month, but also for the last three years of his presidenc

in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new york, it wasn't just that personal grace that allows him to say, i want to make a decision to forgive after he had succeeded. but there

going to go? a republican senate, a republican house, we would have gridlock for two years, but i don't see how the republicans overturn obama care without a national revolution against it which could get him two-thirds of both houses. >> i do worry about one thing, this website which has been a debacle is a real distraction. i've always thought the website could be fixed. the big problem is number one, can we pay for it. are the young and the healthy really buying into it. we don't know that yet. that's number one. number two is the problem, do we have the doctors to deliver the services. we talk about health care. you're talking about access to health care. there's nothing that i've seen in republicans or democrats have done to enhance our medical delivery. >> i agree with you 100%. we are headed for a disaster. quite obviously, who is getting into it quickest and who's most persistent in going to that website and getting through and getting help? it's the people with pre-existing conditions who have tremendous medical problems who need a couple hundred thousand dollars paid. who's

at congress today, when you look at what happened to obama in the knife years since he was initially elected, i think we are very r, sadly, from mandela's legacy in the united states. i think when you look at the global stage and you ask there that is the kind of statesman that mandela really represented to the world, and you scratch your head. we are just not in that enviroent today. we don't have anyone coming to mind that would fit those shoes. they are very big shoes indeed. > yen, one of the fame he is images is of nelson mandela attending the soccer world when it came to stojakovic. what role did that play? >> he was very frail at the time. there was a big question of whether or not he would be able to make it at all. there was south africa appearing on the global stage in the same way that when bengal hosted the olympics, marking the coming of age of china as a real international actor of global capacity. it was so fitting that mandela was able to see that through for his country. i wasn't there, but i of course watched it on tv, as we all did, and you can't tell that it electrifying
years obama did talk about a grand bargain. the republicans tried to meet him halfway. i think the shutdown changed everything. it was such a debacle for the republican party. you know, they had embraced this sort of sabotage approach to nongovernance. i think the assumption was they weren't going to do that again in january. but what they're going to do, what they're going to agree to do, barely there. this mini thing that will get us a few extra months. it's sad this is sort of the state of, quote, budget negotiations. but as obama and democrats have found, when you're negotiating with people who aren't particularly persuadable on anything, you're lucky if you can use sort of a up and down-aid like that. >> kiki, just on the politics of that, i think eric makes a great point. if i'm john boehner and i'm anybody, frankly in the leadership in the republican party, part of my concern is, we've got to have something that i know we are not going to shut the government down over. >> that's right. >> because they know they just cannot handle that another time. those numbers are alre
of 18- 29-year-olds who used to be obama fans. they are against the affordable care act and would like to so him bounced from office. the president pushed back, look it is the republicans who are trying to discourage you from getting health care, take a listen. >> i need your help. you know i need your help. believe it or not there are organizations that are out there working to convince young people not to get insurance. now think about that. that is a really bizarre way to spend your money. >> and they are cautiously optimistic in the white house that they are starting to turn the corner on healthcare.gov and can get the president out there talking about the benefits of the affordable care act. but we see senate republican staffers tweeting out they were doing a tutorial on how senate staffers sign up for the dc exchange here in washington for the health care and there was a break down with the site. spoker boehner was able to get through and enroll and got bad news about how much it is going to cost. >> my health insurance premiums are going to double. my co-pays and tripled under o
